Following a brief teaser, Sony Pictures has released a full trailer for its upcoming animated Garfield movie (appropriately titled The Garfield Movie), and it gives us a better idea of what to expect from the lazy, lasagne-loving tabby-cat's latest big-screen adventure.

The trailer introduces Garfield (Chris Pratt) as a kitten, who winds up in the care of Jon Arbuckle (Nicholas Hoult) after seemingly being abandoned by his father (Samuel L. Jackson). The little moggie soon develops a taste for Italian food (among many other things), and enjoys the good life alongside his canine pal Odie (Gregg Berger).

Garfield's pampered existence is disrupted by the return of his dad, Vic, who enlists his son and Odie for a perilous heist.

This looks like it might be decent fun (it's clearly aimed at younger kids), but we're not sure Pratt was the best choice to provide the voice of this particular character. The Guardians of the Galaxy star ended up working out okay for Mario, but surely Garfield should sound a lot more like, say, Bill Murray?

Yes, the legendary Ghostbusters actor already voiced the cat in the previous live-action (the animals were CGI) Garfield movies, but as negatively-received as those features were, Murray was a perfectly cast.

At any rate, check out the trailer below along with some new posters and let us know what you think.

Garfield (voiced by Chris Pratt), the world-famous, Monday-hating, lasagna-loving indoor cat, is about to have a wild outdoor adventure! After an unexpected reunion with his long-lost father – scruffy street cat Vic (voiced by Samuel L. Jackson) – Garfield and his canine friend Odie are forced from their perfectly pampered life into joining Vic in a hilarious, high-stakes heist.

The Garfield Movie is directed by American animation filmmaker Mark Dindal, director of the movies Cats Don't Dance, The Emperor's New Groove, and Chicken Little. The screenplay is written by Paul A. Kaplan & Mark Torgove and David Reynolds. Based on the Garfield characters originally created by Jim Davis.

Produced by John Cohen, Broderick Johnson, Andrew A. Kosove, Steven P. Wegner, Craig Sost, Namit Malhotra, Crosby Clyse.

Sony Pictures will debut The Garfield Movie in theaters nationwide starting on May 24th, 2024.
